From the book "History of Prince Edward County, VA by Herbert Clarence Bradshaw.
"From the Manakin area to Prince Edward came 3 sons of Jean Jacques Flournoy-David, Mathew, & Thomas- and a daughter, Mary, with her husband, William Booker. Peter & Alexander LeGrand, sons of the second Peter LeGrand and his wife Jane Michaux, also came. Two of the sisters of the mother of the LeGrand brothers, who were daughters of the Huguenot immigrant, Abrham Michaux & his wife, Suzanne Rochet, with their husbands were among the early settlers; they were Ann Madelin Michaux, who married Robert Woodson, whose first land grant in the county was dated 1743, and Easter Mary Michaux, who married Alexander Cunningham, who received a grant on Little Mountian Creek in 1746.

Mrs. Woodson's sister, Easter, or Esther, Mary Michaux, married Alexander Cunningham of a Scothch-Irish Presbyterian family, but there is no indicationof this couple's active identification with Presbyterianism in Prince Edward; a son, John, later became a member of Buffalo Church.
